, 63% has already voted. in florida 53%. iowa 44%. and ohio 31%. john dickerson and i were talking about this earlier today. we could have most of the results already by the people that have come out early and that's why the campaigns spent so much time on getting out the vote early, this ground game on these early votes. >> pelley: we'll come back to you early and often. john dickerson is our cbs news political director. john is going to be showing us the various ways that the candidates can get to the 270 electoral votes necessary to twin presidency. john? >> well, first, scott, let's follow up on what bob was saying. we're going to dispatch with 41 of the states, the majority of the country cbs estimates based on the polling that those states are either going to go to barack obama or to mitt romney. that gives barack obama a start where he's likely to get 237 electoral votes, mitt romney is likely to get 191 electoral votes. so here we are at the beginning of the evening, nothing has been called, it's all possibility. so what is the easiest past for each candidate to get to that
, not only virginia but also florida in the southeast to be competitive in this race tonight, but that is not enough. as we move to the midwest he's going to have po pick off one of the key states in barack obama's fire wall, either ohio or wisconsin because you see what happens right there, if the president gets both ohio and wisconsin he only five votes away from an electoral lock. >> well, this is the difficult route that br has. he has to take the atlantic coasts sta s states and move i into the midwest and start picking off midwestern states. early in the night if he sees trouble in those, it's going to be a very difficult night for mitt romney. he has to win those three atlantic coast states. >> if he doesn't, if the president wins any one if we go back to the what if board in the middle. any one of these in play where he's ahead or tied he has 270 electoral votes. >> let's head off to richmond, virginia, with amy klobuchar robach. i know you're at a dnc headquarters. >> reporter: i'm wearing purple. it was completely coincidental but very appropriate because this is a
press still hasn't called a winner in florida. why not? and why were the lines so long at some polling places across the country? ray suarez gets some answers. >> brown: john merrow tells the story of pediatricians with a new prescription: books to build better brains. >> there's solid research that shows that just that intervention of handing a family a book, giving them a couple of age-appropriate pieces of advice about how to read with their kid and just encouraging reading, they-- those kids will do better in school. >> woodruff: and from politics here to the power shift in china. margaret warner looks at the communist party congress charged with unveiling that country's new leadership. >> brown: that's all ahead on tonight's "newshour." major funding for the pbs newshour has been provided by: ♪ ♪ moving our economy for 160 years. bnsf, the engine that connects us. and by the alfred p. sloan foundation. supporting science, technology, and improved economic performance and financial literacy in the 21st century. and with the ongoing support of these institutions and foundations
here. i'll tell you in a minute on florida, but welcome back to our special second hour of "the daily rundown." i'm chuck todd. let's see where we stand this hour and how the president pulled off a win lastnight. the president put together a decisive victory last night. falling short of the votes he won in 2008 against john mccain. but he had 303. romney 206. florida's are still on the table. the state does technically remain too close to call. miami-dade county is counting 20,000 absentee ballots they tell us. that's what they're counting right now. that's in miami-dade. that appears to be the largest chunk of vote. if that breaks away the way they're going, it's impossible. i guess nothing's impossible. it's improbable. it looks like president obama is going to get that one too. it'll be 323 electoral votes when all is said and done. but let's go and show you how the president did it, if you will. i want to go to ohio because ohio was a big deal at the time. what was interesting here is where the margins were. it was all margins. this wasn't -- this was reduplicating the map. here's
: you covered jeb bush in florida. >> he has been a leading mathematician. he said the republican party needs to embrace immigration reform, not just for political reasons but for economic reasons. there is common ground when it comes to immigration on the one aspect of immigration reform that deals with high skilled workers. we need to make sure the brightest who come here to get educated are staying here. because of the other issues involving immigration, border security, folks not highly skilled, that muddies the water. perhaps this election will be the frying pan on the head of the republican party. >> there was talk about romney's change in tone. talk about this message versus substance debate they will probably have to have. should they just be nicer to hispanics? >> the public is more informed than it ever has been because of the internet. we are not getting the job done here in washington. the same is true for the democrats. i was struck by the president's speech. he's never followed up on the 2008 speech. he was not able to fill those lofty promises. he was very powerful. humil
the confederacy except for florida and virginia, it's exactly the same. that coalition retains to this day that's the regional party they're becoming. very interesting piece in the new yorker talking about the potential for texas to become blue in the next few cycles, and if that happens, then the democrats start over 270, i think jonathan can do the math in his head, and forget it. then you're just a minority party we would study in political science classes. >> this afternoon you and i were discussing some things that have been part of this republican campaign and we talked about the jim crow era. >> uh-huh. >> how much of that rhetoric has been as it were reignited this time around. >> it was full of it this time. i think if you look at the bush campaign, the bush years, did he a lot of things badly, but he was embracing of latinos. he wasn't overtly in terms of rhetoric negative toward blacks. i think he took it to a much more subtle level. romney brought it back. he's making birtherism jokes, sending john sununu out in say crazy things, rick santorum saying whatever he said about blah peop
colonel allen mutt looked like he lost in florida. he was a conservative. he lost. i think white guys can be conservative and win if they are good candidates and they make good ideas that are repealing. democrat, republic. this obsession with welling the ticket has to be all white or all black or brown, white, i just think it's silly. you are nodding your head. you want a color coded ticket. >> no. you are talking about racial bean counting. you are way way lost on this one. i don't get it you are so smart. look at the numbers of what came out tuesday and it looks like huge victory among whites for romney but loses the election. he had a plus 27 advantage among white men. still couldn't put him in the oval office. if you are thinking of it strategically and you want republicans to win. you have to be more inclusive and especially with the rapidly emerging latino population. >> do you think considers could have beaten barack obama? >> i don't know that she could have beaten him. she is closely identified with the bush administration. you were just pointing out they left some baggage on the
there's including american airlines, target and florida blew them are very grateful to them as well. we have a very special new program for you. i hope you will stay with for the tire afternoon, but of course they are our many author sessions throughout this fair that you should partake in, as time and enjoy. your cell phones if you'd please turn those off as a standard as you all know so we have no interruption in the author will be autographing books as always in the green area to the right of the elevator. to introduce our author today, i'm sure you will all be delighted to have the individual who is a founder of miami book fair in your national. let me see if you can guess who this individual is as they move along. one of the founders of miami book fair international, the owner of books and books. i think i gave it away right there. and certainly someone in this community who has propelled the move went of book selling them publishing and all that encompasses literary work. please look on mr. mitchell castle to the podium.

reelection with 303 electoral votes with florida's 29 still undetermined and over 50% of the popular vote. the national journal hosted several panel discussions breaking down the road to results and looking at the implications for national politics and the congressional agenda. >> it turned out not to be as long night as people expected and we're going to talk about that today and why and look forward to how the president to make go forward from this victory which think is safe to say it was quicker and bigger than many people expected. would you like to tell us how this happened and -- why this happened and how? >> it was bigger than we expected. he really swept the battleground states. the only states that he lost that he had won in 2008, was north carolina which he had won by 14,000 votes in 2008. it was considered a fluke. what that tells us is that the set of assumptions that the obama campaign was operating on was correct. and a set of assumptions that the romney campaign was operating on was not. it's sort of make sense in a way sense obama's theory about the campaign turned out to
electoral votes to 206 for romney. florida is still too close to call. as predicted, the popular vote is much closer. about 50% of americans voted for the president, while 48% chose romney. we have complete election coverage this morning, beginning with nancy cordes in chicago. she covered president obama's victory speech, which was just a few hours ago. nancy, good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you, norah and charlie. well, in the end, this race wound up just about exactly where the obama campaign had predicted it would, with the president sweeping almost every battleground state. today he returns to washington to begin the hard work of repairing frayed relationships with the other side after a bitter, sometimes petty campa n campaign. it was well after midnight when the president, vice president and their families hugged and waved to supporters from the stage at mccormick place after president obama declared victory. >> tonight, more than 200 years after a former colony won the right to determine its own destiny, the task of perfecting our union moves forward. >> this is a
carolina was the only battleground state that romney won. >> that is correct. florida is still out. this year is turned out to be irrelevant. what did the republicans miss? >> practically anybody who was brown or black, procter we anybody who believes that immigration is an issue that needs to be tackled. was a case where the republican party is stampeding towards prevalence if they don't catch -- stampeding toward irrelevance up to then't catch new america and the changing demographics. you cannot have a ruling coalition that is virtually all white. you had president obama put together this new rising coalition and put together enough of the old democratic coalition to win. he got more than 70% of hispanics. young voters. if you vote once to twice as a democrat, history shows that there will be a lifetime democrats. the republicans are missing the idea of trying to expand their percentage of a shrinking electorate. this is becoming a majority- minority nation. this is probably the last time the republicans love a chance to win like this. >> let's talk about why this happened. how
involved in a lot of places. >> they tried. >> they tried. most notably in florida. >> colorado, too, and other places and it blew up in their face. >> because marco rubio wasn't sharing the angle. so this time around they said, okay, we will not get involved. in some ways it's a damned if you do, damned if you don't because i'm not sure -- i don't know that stronger involvement from the nrsc, and the national republican committee, does that keep him from losing? >> but do they get punished for not having the guts to tell jim demint enough? you know what, your guys are doing this. or do they have to do it now? >> i think there will be -- we were talking about this off-air. i do think there is a reckoning within the republican party now to say, do you want to win or do you want to kind of preserve the righteousness of your principles among a smaller and smaller and smaller and smaller group of people. that's what the election showed. >> i bring this up. some senate republicans think i was being unfair this morning to mcconnell and coryn. the way washington worked 20 years ago, there w
at a fund-raiser in florida and the rnc contacted him and said because you were speaking out for the need for a third voice you're no longer invited to represent us at a fund-raiser. so he's actually been disinvited to a lot of events." >> i kind of spilled the beans there. not sure i was supposed to let that out but i'm glad that i did because that was actually what happened. they looked at my dad as someone that was more harmful to the party than any good. now you look at it, the flip of the switch, we want to go back there now, he's where we were. but my dad has always been authentic. i think the biggest lesson you should learn from what we're seeing with romney is you have to stay true to who you are because the party is going to come and go. as long as you are who you are, i think they'll respect you. that's not what we're seeing with some of the people out there speaking today. >> but that's how you see how good people, moderate people, adults in the party are being pushed aside for the extremists. >> yep. >> right. >> abby huntsman and toure, thanks for your time this evening. and
marco rubio from florida and jeb bush and say give us some instructions. tell us what we're doing wrong because republicans are not going to change what they relieve. they're republicans for reason the same way democrats are democrats for a reason. should those principles be of greater appeal to hispanics? the answer is probably guess. somehow that is being lost in the debate among other things about immigration. dennis: did mitt romney get hurt by taking a hard line on immigration which does not play well with hispanic voters? >> no doubt that happened. the got pushed to the right or allow himself to get pushed on to the right on emigration and wasn't able to take the lifeline that marco rubio threw him in the general election when he said here is a dream act, a way for young children of illegal immigrants who have gone to school and played by the rules or maybe even in the military to get legal status. couldn't embrace that because he had been pushed too far to the right. those of the issues that will be read debated within the republican party starting today. >> black unemployment ro
